I am working on trust.  Can you tell?

I love the word trust.  Whatever is going on, this word can give you the ability to shift away from concern, anxiety, maybe even fear and "what ifs"... and move you into peace and comfort.

I've realized people trust in a lot of different things.  I guess we all do.  We trust our paychecks will come on time.  We trust we will be safe in our cars.  We trust our friend or our spouse or our children will forgive us when (not if) we mess up.  Healthy people trust on that level automatically.

A deeper level of trust, for me, is my trust in God.  The Universe, the All-Knowing, the Father....whatever you choose to call your creator.  That is the Trust that prevails when there is no reason that makes sense to hold on.  It is the Trust that makes sense after the fact.  Things that are so puzzling when they happen begin to make sense down the road.  It is that Trust that turns pain into peace.

If your trust ever gets a little shaky or "isn't working", try going a little deeper.  Reach for 'knowing'.   Trust is way beyond hoping.  And 'knowing' is even beyond trust.

Pay attention to your trust level in all areas of your life. Grab onto "trust" as your go-to word for awhile and maybe it will become an amazing habit.  

"Don't worry", say the lilies of the field and the birds in the air.  Be as such and trust that all is well.   Remember once you turn on the light, there never are any monsters under the bed.  Let Trust be your light switch to peace.
